Lent, traditionally, has been about giving something up. So, this Lent, why not give up something you don’t really need, and give it away to someone who is in need?
Most of us have clothing or other items in our cupboards that haven’t seen the light of day for a while. Whether they are rags or bags, boots or even books; they could be given to someone who is in need.
So, during Lent of 2022 – between 2nd March and 17th April (excluding Sundays) – let’s pick an item and bag it or box it to donate. You might even decide that you don’t need that tasty treat one day – a chocolate, or a cup of coffee – instead, give it up and give it away. (You could give a pound or two instead of your coffee!)
At the end of Lent, we will happily collect your donations, or you can drop them off for us if you wish.
Proceeds from the sale of this booklet will go towards supporting local FoodShare as well as communities in Uganda and Kenya. Our aim is to make a real difference in people’s lives and in the world at large.
Proceeds from donations and sales will be administered by Misfits Ministries, a not-for-profit Christian social enterprise.
